Difference Between Cat 5, Cat 5e, And Cat 6 Cable

For those unfamiliar with the various types of Ethernet cables available for networking and connecting their computers to the Internet, making the choice between Cat 5, Cat 5e, and Cat 6 cables can be a rather confusing one. First you have to understand the differences between each version as well as getting to grips with the various related industry terms.

With the term Cat being short for category, the numbers and letters to follow are all used to indicate performance. These performance designations make it easier to choose the right type for various purposes such as networking computers together or using peripherals including hubs and routers.

All three types of cables, Cat 5, Cat 5e, and Cat 6, are comprised of four pairs of UTP (unshielded twisted pair), but the amount of transmissions the cable will be able to support is up to its category rating.
